Re: Recent Film Images

Thank you for the comments. I enjoy shooting with film - though it certainly forces me to think about what I am doing a lot more than when shooting digital. I am trying to get the old 1/3 decent pictures ratio, which means that I will probably be shooting a lot of street type photography in black an...

Recent Film Images

I went on a buying binge (sort of) over the last few months - film cameras (manual focus Minoltas) and lenses. Finally started using some of them in the last few months. Some pictures.

Huntley Meadows - Not Just Birds

I usually go to Huntley Meadows Park in suburban Alexandria, Virginia for some birding. This day though, was not for the birds. 1. Yellow, Isolated https://media.joomeo.com/large/59bcdfc46d2de.jpg 2.

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Nice shots and the last one is very interesting. Dancing lead miners? I would not have thought about that.

Thank you for the comments. It was a very different experience taking pictures of flowers in the rain.

Re: On a rainy afternoon at Meadowlark Gardens

Thank you for the complement. It was raining off and on but it was an opportunity to go around the garden undisturbed. There was a wedding reception going on in the banquet/reception building adjacent to the garden's visitors center. It didn't clear up soon enough for the wedding party to go outside...

Macros from Meadowlark

I've been amiss with posting images here and it seems the old ones that I posted have been lost in the photobucket. I purchased a Sony 90mm macro and I absolutely love this lens. I go to Meadowlark Gardens fully intending to use other lenses, but the 90mm macro just makes me want to explore the smal...

Re: Wood Ducks

I kind of oversharpened the last two images (for effect). I used the Tamron 150-600 for these images.

Metamorphosis

My friend and I were at Huntley Meadows last Saturday and he came upon a guy who was excitedly calling a friend about a dragon fly larva climbing up a piece of wood and undergoing a transformation. After taking some pictures of a turtle and a frog (it wasn't pretty), I came upon the scene and stayed...
